The difference between winning and losing is very small at times, Saturday 5-0 defeat at Bonnyrigg was certainly not a small margin and Bonnyrigg thoroughly deserved to win the game.

We are arrived at New Dundas Park with 13 players including two u19’s and two players only 75{7c374192a6b4ab3759a998c7ed91b6a23e4a55c5a2bdeefb0f495d9809378483} fit, so to say we were depleted is an understatement. That said I was confident that our starting eleven could cause problems for Bonnyrigg and over the piece, I was really proud and pleased with our performance.

Bonnyrigg are a top side and they deserved to win the game, they created several chances throughout the game but disappointingly for us, we contributed to our own downfall with some sloppy defending. When you leave  a 6ft plus attacker, unchallenged in the 6 yard box then there is only going to be one winner.

I don’t have too much more to say about the game, if I did, then for the second week running, I would be talking about ‘big’ decisions that were made by the officials, that had a huge impact on the result.

I want to finish on a positive note and this season has seen lots of highs for me, the character shown by my players.  the 6 month undefeated run and the grit and character shown by my players.  I am proud of every one of them. The minimum required from this season was retaining our Super League status and we did that with 5 games remaining, which was a fantastic achievement.

Games of football aren’t won by coaches, managers or even formations, they are won by a group of players  that commits to giving their absolute all not to lose. When we were at our best that’s exactly what the boys did this season and I take my hat off to that.

Finally a massive thank you to every single person associated to the club, especially our supporters that have attended games throughout the season
